    Trans fats are man made poisons that add no nutritional value to foods.

    They just make foods look and taste better.

    If the only way you can make your product look and taste good is to add poison to it then you either need to find a new way to make your product desirable, or you need to go out of business.

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    General welfare dude.

    Trans fats add nothing good to food and they detract from the general welfare.

    Too bad, but it's Constitutional.

    Yes, because members of Congress are required to uphold the Constitution, but it was not written to dictate personal behavior. It was written as our "framework" for government, limiting its power and granting rights for its citizens that the government cannot take away without an amendment. What has happened since its adoption through actions of both the Congress and Courts is an abomination...

    but the actions of both the congress and court that turned the Constitution into a "abomination" were allowed to happen because of interpreting the Constitution.

    congress and the courts have been doing it ever since George Washington ended his final term as president of the united states

    So under 'general welfare' they could tell you what to eat, where to live, where to work, if you can procreate, ad infinitum.

    Do you really want to open that door?

    Got it, but it wasn't until the passage of the passage of the 16th amendment and FDRs programs being shoved through the courts that everything got way out of whack as that allowed the Congress get direct control of rewarding/punishing activities through the tax code and providing direct benefits to individuals, giving them extraordinary power...

    some would argue that the people wanted the 16th amendment, imagine that, people wanted a income tax.

    and it was okay for the founders and politicians in the 1800s and 1900s but not for any politican in the 20th century?

    The 1900's were the 20th century, and a 1% tax on payrolls that didn't affect most wage earners, sure many supported that, but look at what has happened since. Do you realize that our current debt is roughly equal to the spending on social welfare programs since Johnson's War on Poverty?

    So Congress shouldn't be able to ban someone selling you cyanide-laced hot dogs? You really want to close that door?

    Absolutes are fun.

    Labeling... people have a right to know what their eating and make informed choices.
    Hows that for absolutes?
